The Confabulist by Steven Galloway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars I’m not sure if I’ve recommended this author before or not, but the book I want to recommend this month is THE CONFABULIST by Steven Galloway. The first of his books I read was ASCENSION, and it had one of the most riveting opening chapters I have ever read. This new book is about the magician Houdini and the man who killed him. It is a twisted puzzler wrapped around the lives of the two man and many others, a love story for each, and the ways in which we view life when we want to remake it. This kept me reading all the way through. It does not have an opening chapter of the same power as ASCENSION, but the close will make you think twice about what you thought this book was about.
